So this is why I see those stupid "Cannot Prevent/Allow Medium Removal"
errors when i use either cdrecord or cdrdao... Of course I knew it had
something to do with the kernel upgrade ( but I didn't see this
in the changelog.
Oh well, using "sudo" passwordless for this command only doesn't bother
# allow all users of group cdrom to execute cdrdao passwordless:
%cdrom  ALL=NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/cdrdao,/usr/bin/cdrecord

I guess some people would say: why not just use cdrecord/cdrdao in set-
uid mode... But, there are a million reasons why not to use that and
allow sudo access instead.

Hope this helps somebody out there..
